Sacred King Chess Peter Aronson This game is played just like usual Chess, except you may not move one of your pieces in such a way as to give check to the opposing King. However, the usual rule against moving into check still applies. Victory is by bare King (reducing your opponent to nothing but a King) or by stalemate. You do not get a chance to capture your opponent's last non-royal piece after they capture yours. This tends to be a longish game. Your King is very effective in defending your pieces, since captures that would put it into check are not allowed.
